That said, we received 326 responses from REMODELING readers, and the data we do have is still quite useful. This report looks at job costs and overhead amounts as a percentage of total expenses, which still provides a valuable baseline for comparison.
Variety by Volume
Companies of different sizes operate differently, so we have once again divided responses into five groups based on annual revenues that are representative of our respondents: under $250,000; $250,000 to $1 million; $1 million to $2 million; $2 million to $5 million; and more than $5 million. (For easy comparison, these categories correspond to the groupings used in our December 2007 report.)
Each of the following pages is devoted to one group, starting from smallest and working up to the largest. The most useful numbers to you will be those on the page that corresponds most closely to the revenue of your company, but looking at figures for other revenue groups will give you an idea of how a remodeling company’s expenses vary as its volume grows.
